6:30 pm
>> hey, everybody, breaking news off the top tonight. former national security advisor michael flynn we've learned will hand over some documents to the senate committee. we are learning this, watching this ca
6:31 pm
communications resigning just three months into the job. that's what we're talking about tonight at 6:30. check the run down for the hot stories we're following for you right now. let's take you to 1600 pennsylvania avenue. all seems pretty calm there on the outside, but behind the scenes there are reportedly a lot of chaos a lot of things going on there. as we mentioned we learned president trump's communications director mike upper darby key resigned may 18, but offered to stay on through the president's first oversees trip. dub key is parting on good terms. the name doesn't really ring a loft bells out there, but communication's job that's what george step nap lose had in the clinton white house. jason miller who was with the trump campaign decided he was not going to take the job. we just don't know. simply the
6:32 pm
the facts. it's all about keeping everybody on mess aiblg let's be honest there's a lot of different messages coming out at different times. the president coming to his son-in-law's defense. president trump telling the new york times jared is doing a great job for the country. there are reports that kushner has been told to lay low in the wake of reports that he has tried toette s up secret meeting with the russians. several white house staffers were q by the allegations. they say they are routine and. i think he is frustrated like i am and like so many others that these stories come out that are patently false. when you see stories get perpetrated that are absolutely false, that are not based in fact, that is
6:33 pm
>> and one of the issues that came out tonight, too, the white house has made a narrative they don't like anonymous sources. they say thattic fake news. >> today president trump tweeted articles that had anonymous sources. >> and sean spicer was asked about that and he didn't have much to say about it. let's bring in republican strategist to break things down for us. >> good to have you both in here tonight. we're going to start with spicer. a lot of people were watching him to see what came out of this any surprises for you in. >> no, let's be honest. there were a up can of things that were approached, defense homeland security secretary john kelly said this wasn't that really big of a deal for jared kushner to set up. >> i grew up with a saying keep your friends closure, your
6:34 pm
calls for his security clearance to be pull. there have been calls for him to resign, a back channel okay? >> it is way premature to talk about pulling his security clearance or anything else. we need to know what was said. was it done by the president's request. we just don't know anything about this yet other than, you know, the report that came out of a leaked intelligence source. how much do you guys think that this has to do with the fact that here's a guy, he has his job because, look there's no doubt about it, he's accomplished in that he worked in real estate before, but doesn't have diplomatic experience, come in with any government experience. how much of this is based on the fact that maybe he was just a little naive about this? i think you can make a case that jared kushner is a very smart guy, some mistakes may have been made, but let's take a look at this in the first place, if there was any
6:35 pm
the russians and the president why would a back channel need to be set up in the first place? do you want to up. q. p in there, gary. >> again, it doesn't seem like a really smart idea to me, but we don't know anything more than these two or three sentences that out over the weekend. >> let me switch gears about the breaking news that came down just a short time ago. >> it seems like a lot of this came out about michael flynn. we've learned that he's going to do with his businesses. he pled the fifth. >> what do you think is going on here? how damaging could this be for the white house. >> that we don't know, but flynn is between a hard and a rock place. he has a subpoena from congress to turn over the papers. if he refuses that, then he's in contempt of
6:36 pm
fifth amendment claims over paper. so he's really doing what he has to do. he doesn't have a choice here. what we'll see is what are in these papers before you can assess if it's going to many dangerous deliveries age the white house. just to buy that together. kushner's attorney said he'll cooperate with awful this. i feel like on the one side they're pledging some level of transparency, some level of forthright to the investigation into these ties. i mean the opticses on that would be quite positive. >> i would say, so i think if you just look at the behavior, flynn is probably in more trouble or more potential trouble than certainly kushner. spencer, do you think that the media is being fair to this administration? >> i think there's a lot of parallels here between the trump campaign handling this crisis with the russians and the clinton campaign handling the crisis with the e-mails. i think
6:37 pm
drip factor that happened on both sides with the clinton e-mails and with the president trump administration with the russians i think there's this daze california approach in the beginning where it wasn't this serious, this 25 news cycle with both the e-mails and the russian occurrences, i would em ploar the present trump administration to get all this out front as soon as possible. get this over with. set up your war room department, communications department where they can block and tackle these issues as they come up, but also have it part of your communications department that can talk about your pro-trump administration message of cutting taxes, of creating jobs, of repealing and replacing obamacare. we went and asked people about that yesterday. i want to ask you one quick thing, hypothetical 2017 won the election, her
6:38 pm
to the russia to set up communication do you think things would be the same. >> absolutely the same, in my opinion. >> i think what the present trump administration has to get this out in front and move forward? a. guys, it's great to hear from both of you. >> thanks for coming in. >> with two weeks to go with the virginia primary, the quinn acc poll has ed gill gill less lead state senator frank wagner 7 percent and undecided at 5 percent. we've seen all the ads for the democrat race. we're talking about this race, all i've seen is tom parallel and ralph norman on the democratic side. i haven't seen many republican adses so
6:39 pm
>> you're right. can i make shawn feel better for a second. >> yes, please. >> if i've had a disiem for disiem dime for every time i mispronounced quinn pi acc. >> getting back to the subject at hand. what is this about? all right. this is an old story than a it's so old you got to go back to 2001. here's the deal. back in 2001, ed gillespie who as we know was the former chairman of the republican national committee. well, he went into the lobbying business one of his clients was tyson foods, the big chicken company. tysons was accused back in 2001 of bringing in illegal i am grants to work in their company they retained the services of ed gillespie's pr company to the tune of over a million dollars. h this hit the papers today and soon
6:40 pm
stuart's hand, that is gillespie opponent in the gop republican primary. as you well know, stuart has been a long, vocal of strict enforcement immigration law in this country and he ceased upon this today saying that gillespie is not what he appears to be, he's not this conservative that is going to get tough on immigration. he's hypocritical on this issue because he did lobbying on behalf of a company that was accused of immigration violation. we asked him about this today. we wanted to know whether he thinks this late in the game, is this going to make any difference when the voting actually comes to a head in two weeks? this is what he haded to say. he wants to have it both what is. on the one hand during this primary he's saying that he's going to be tough on
6:41 pm
tough doesn't mean amnesty. being tough dwos not mean trying to cover up charges against american corporations that are exploiting illegal immigrants. so we reached out to ed gillespie's campaign today for a comment. they sent us back a statement reading in part, kor i stuart's campaign has been a constant extreme of fabrication and false hoods. tyson's retained him in 2001. a jury later found the company not guilty. the bottom line jim and sean is this right now. we have two weeks to go before this gop primary. ed gillespie is far ahead. the quinny pack has him at 27 percent. kor i stuart is way down there. we asked h him about this today, you get the answer you'd expect. the politician hyped
6:42 pm
the polls, but let's also remember, folks, that there was a poll back in october that said if we believed them, hillary clinton would be our president right now. >> yep. >> so we have recent experience. >> sure we have. >> to show that these polls are not always what they appear to be. >> give kor i stuart the benefit of the disowt. \he\es has a way of getting headlines, giving out guns. he's found a way to get media attention when helps out his campaign. maybe he's found some lightening in a bottle this time. you're right. this has probably been the best day he's had. he's also run into some other problems along the way. it's coming late in the game. perhaps maybe too late. but for stuart's part today this was an issue they thought they could cease upon and they did. >> sure h. >> thank you and thanks for making me feel better over saying quinny pack. our
6:43 pm
producer josh who does 5@6:30, he's a grad. he just texted me to say bobcats class of 05. >> thank you, fits. let's talk a little bit about the weather. we have seeing our fair share of severe weather moving through. >> i'm happy to tell you that at the moment we live no warnings, no severe thunderstorm warnings or tornado warning. we are still tracking two storms, but the loudon county storm has gotten quite a bit bitter. we're watching that one and that has gotten lighter. the southern stoirms still on the strong side so let's focus on that for just a minute and i wanted to show you that that is morning across southern portions of fauquier into stafford. heads up. it is loaded with heavy lightning as it continues moving southeast at about 30 miles an howmple the clouds have tried to break up across our
